Re: XC 15-45 or XC 16-50 OR XF 18-55 on X-T20 for beginner ?

I have the XC16-50 ll and after reading some good reviews of the XC15-45 I bought one.

Comparing the two I ended up returning the 15-45. Actually I liked it operationally but the IQ wasn`t quite up to my 16-50. The long end was not great at all. I understand it`s an issue with this lens.

That said, I`d be willing to try another sample given the opportunity ,but for now the 16-50 serves me well.

Update: Got me another xc15-45 pz recently that came with my XA5. This copy is really good , maybe even as good as my old xc16-50 oisll but hard to tell now that I no longer have the older lens. As we all know, kit lens quality often varies from one copy to another.
